Ezra Furman & The Harpoons - Video Reprise from Adam Holz on Vimeo.

"This song is called Mother's Day, it's about a whore I knew in Chicago. Here it goes, goes, ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR!"

Yes, that is Furman's prolific uttering made at the beginning of "Mother's Day" a key track off 2007's Banging Down the Doors. This album was our introduction found after filtering through a number of influential sources and landing in our lap, . Upon arrival, the record found a home on our iPods and in our (insert cheesy cliche beginning with "H" here.) Since moving on from 2007's release, Furman found different musical friends including the Clash, Green Day, and Johnathan Richman of the Modern Lovers. Influences abound, Furman began to sow his punk-rock oats, culminating in the release of 2008's Inside the Human Body.

Since then, Stark has become closer with Furman and his entourage, learning more about what makes the band tick, smile, cry, eat, the usual. Please enjoy the video above taken from the Stark-sponsored Ezra Furman & the Harpoons Show @ Piano's. See our interview here as well. Speical thanks of course to videographer, Adam Holz.
